Are Jeremy Lin & the Brooklyn Nets Better Off Without Kenny Atkinson?

Posted on 18 Mar, 2017, by in NBA

Maybe there’s no reason to get too hung up about the Brooklyn Nets messing up another winnable game, this time losing 95-98 at home to the Boston Celtics. But perhaps it was another example of Kenny Atkinson mismanaging and misreading the situation. Who knows, maybe the Brooklyn Nets need a better head coach. Maybe Jeremy Lin, despite his connection with Atkinson, could benefit from someone else. More

Jeremy Lin Shows the Brooklyn Nets What They’ve Been Missing

Posted on 7 Mar, 2017, by in NBA

If anyone, including Kenny Atkinson, needed a reminder of just how important Jeremy Lin is to the Brooklyn Nets, his fourth quarter performance in the shocking win over the Memphis Grizzlies served as a very fun reminder. The worst team in the NBA beat a sleeper contender 122-109, in the FedEx Forum of all places. More

Posted on 12 Jan, 2017, by in NBA

When the most interesting thing that happened to the Brooklyn Nets during their current losing streak (7 in a row) is Dwight Howard not shaking hands with Jeremy Lin is a joke, there’s something very wrong with the franchise. More

Back to back games against the two NBA finalists of the last two years? The Brooklyn Nets weren’t optimistic about walking away with wins in this one, but the 20-point loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers comes at the wrong time for a team that hasn’t been able to take advantage of Jeremy Lin’s return as much as it could have, or at least wanted to.

There wasn’t a single surprised soul inside the Barclays Arena in Brooklyn as the Nets lost 129-109 to the Portland Trail Blazers. Jeremy Lin is still out with his mysterious hamstring injury, and no one knows when he’ll actually be back. More

Jeremy Lin Injured, Brook Lopez Resting: Brooklyn Nets Had no Chance

Posted on 15 Nov, 2016, by in NBA

The Brooklyn Nets began their two-game trip to L.A. with a game against the Los Angeles Clippers. No Brook Lopez (rest) and no Jeremy Lin (still shut down because of the hamstring) among other injures didn’t leave Kenny Atkinson with too many options, and it certainly looked that way from the first moment the two teams stepped on the floor.

Jeremy Lin Needs Brooklyn Nets Teammates to Step Up (Pistons Preview)

Posted on 2 Nov, 2016, by in NBA

The loss to the Chicago Bulls was the wrong way to start off a homestand that offers rest between nights and winnable games. Jeremy Lin is living up to the expectations, but there needs to be more for the Nets to start building towards something this season. Facing the Detroit Pistons on a second night of a back to back isn’t a bad opportunity. More
